  1. Anyone noticed that the instructions would have you put the main undercarriage units in the wrong side, i.e. LHS in RHS and vice-versa. 😡 Cheers Phil
  2. Kursad, Does this sheet come with an insert for the vehicle numnbers for the USAF aircraft or are they missing from the sheet? I purchased one yesterday at a show and there were no numbers for the USAF aircraft on it or a place for them, unlike the 1/48th scale sheet which has them on it. Cheers Phil Hastie Canberra, Australia.
  3. Thanks, the picture shows the correct C model wheels.
  4. Thanks for this Murph, now I can continue with painting the correct wheeels. Cheers Phil
  5. When would F-15A MSIP aircraft have got C model wheels? I actually need to know if the two Massachusetts ANG 9-11 scramblers had A or C model wheels at that time. Thanks for your time and help with this question Cheers Phil Hastie Canberra, Australia "The Nation's Capital"
  6. So this sheet doesn't have the badge on the port side that you posted above? Cheers Phil Hastie Canberra, Australia The Nation's Capital
  7. Nice job Andrew, now I don't know whether I'll do mine as that bird or another one with those decals. 😄
  8. I believe that only the Nth Dakota and Minnesota ANG units had these wheels as they were introduced around the middle of F-16C Blk 30 production. Though I maybe wrong with this assumption. HTH Phil Canberra, Australia.
  9. I think an ANG Wing Kings style sheet would sell well as there are quite a lot of 72 scale modellers around. I for one hunt through all the new 72 scale release hoping for ANG F-16 markings, especially now there have been some great special schemes lately.
  10. Craig, Have you found the parts yet? I may be able to help if you haven't. Phil Hastie Canberra, Australia
  11. Bill, Check that the decals are the correct size. My sheet had a lot of the aircraft numbers for the refuelling markings in 1/48th scale on the 1/72nd sheet. There was a small replacement sheet for that aircraft as my Panthers were also in 1/48th scale not 1/72nd. HTH Phil Hastie Canberra Australia
  12. They do supply separate pieces for the tailhook without the fairing in the kit, or at least in the F-15C MSIP II "173rd Fighter Wing" Academy - Nr. 12506 boxing they have. Much closer to correct than the new release from Hasegawa with the Oregon show bird, which doesn't even have the updated aerials or modified tailhook parts in it. Still the same kit from when it was first released. Cheers Phil
  13. Ray, Ask me about spare engines and nacelles at lunch next Wednesday. Phil H
  14. These new Academy 1/72nd F-15C kit decals are by Cartograf.
